If you're looking for a reason to abandon Facebook, Richard Stallman -- best known for being a software freedom activist and computer programmer -- has put together this comprehensive list of reasons why Facebook is bad for you, backed up with articles and posts.

I have never used Facebook. There is a Facebook account called "Richard Stallman" but it is an impostor.
